    Ask MoDaCo: Asus FonePad


    This is the £179.99, Android 4.1, 7" WXGA (1280x800) IPS, Intel Atom Z2420 1.2 GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB ROM, microSD (!) equipped Asus FonePad. Got questions? Ask them here before our review!

    We're very keen to see how the device measures up compared to it's £60 more expensive Nexus 7 3G sibling.

    Released only today, the device is shipping now from Amazon UK.

    Game performance compared to the Tegra 3 in the Nexus 7? Any comparison? Or does the Nexus win hands down?

    Also what is general performance like e.g. Speed of opening apps.

    Have you put it to your ear and made a call yet? :P

    Can I have it when you get bored of it please? ;)

    serious question: Have they managed to improve the houdini binary translation library so app compatibility is better? Older Intel devices are unable to use Adobe Air applications which means iPlayer doesn't work.

    are you sure..some tabs won't accept phone sims as the network registers the device as a non-phone

    My 3 SIM doesn't work in my N7 3G, it DOES in this!
